The Roscongress Foundation is a socially oriented non-financial development institution and a major organizer of nationwide and international conventions; exhibitions; and business, public, youth, sporting, and cultural events. It was established in pursuance of a decision by the President of the Russian Federation.

The Foundation was established in 2007 with the aim of facilitating the development of Russia’s economic potential, promoting its national interests, and strengthening the country’s image. One of the roles of the Foundation is to comprehensively evaluate, analyse, and cover issues on the Russian and global economic agendas. It also offers administrative services, provides promotional support for business projects and attracting investment, helps foster social entrepreneurship and charitable initiatives.

Each year, the Foundation’s events draw participants from 208 countries and territories, with more than 15,000 media representatives working on-site at Roscongress’ various venues. The Foundation benefits from analytical and professional expertise provided by 5,000 people working in Russia and abroad.

The Foundation works alongside various UN departments and other international organizations, and is building multi-format cooperation with 173 economic partners, including industrialists’ and entrepreneurs’ unions, financial, trade, and business associations from 78 countries worldwide, and 179 Russian public organizations, federal and legislative agencies, and federal subjects.

The Roscongress Foundation has Telegram channels in Russian t.me/Roscongress, English – t.me/RoscongressDirect, and Spanish t.me/RoscongressEsp. Official website and Information and Analytical System of the Roscongress Foundation: roscongress.org.

Фонд Росконгресс выпустил официальный журнал ПМЭФ-2019

Theofficial magazine of the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum 2019 has been released. The publication by the Roscongress Foundation covers a range of topics which will be discussed at the main business event of the year on 6–8 June.

The content of the magazine centres heavily around the main theme of the Forum: Creating a Sustainable Development Agenda. It covers the creation of transport corridors to support international trade, cyber security in an era of digitalization, strategies for entering global markets, and new technology, together with ways it will shape the jobs of the future.

“We view SPIEF Magazine as a way of starting a discussion – one which will evolve substantially over the course of the Forum. In time, we expect this dialogue to translate into new partnerships in the international business community, as well as specific agreements and projects,” said Advisor to the President of the Russian Federation Anton Kobyakov. 

The design of the magazine is influenced by Palekh folk painting, reflecting the rich cultural and historical heritage that Russia has shared with the world.

An extraordinary artist from the village of Palekh explains what it means to combine tradition with modernity. Elsewhere, the highlight of the magazine’s entertainment section is an eye-catching interview with Sergey Shnurov, frontman of pop group Leningrad, as he prepares to perform for guests at the official reception hosted by the SPIEF Organizing Committee.

St. Petersburg naturally features prominently as the city hosting the Forum. The magazine explores some of the city’s most popular tourist routes and unusual restaurants, and there is also an article about an ambitious plan to turn Kronstadt into the largest museum island in the world.

As with other Roscongress Foundation publications, issues related to social policy come under the spotlight. A host of renowned experts and practitioners explore how the Russian and international business sectors regard social responsibility, why corporate volunteering is crucial, and whether regional cities can realistically be transformed into cultural and festival centres. Readers will also be able to find out about upcoming initiatives by the Innosocium Foundation for the Promotion of Social Development, which was established in 2019 as part of the Roscongress Foundation.

The magazine is published in both Russian and English. Copies will be available at the Forum venue, on Aeroflot flights, and a number of trains running from Moscow to St. Petersburg. An electronic version of the magazine is available on the official SPIEF website and the ROSCONGRESS.ORG Information and Analytical System.
